The gypsy punks from New York’s Lower East Side return to Luxembourg for a show that promises to get the A crowd in a sweat.
Gogol Bordello is renowned for its breathless, breakneck live set. Spurred on by leader Eugene Hütz, originally from Ukraine, the band plays “gypsy” music with a mixed bag of other influences thrown in – everything from reggae to dance music and “whatever else strikes their fancy… Beirut to Balkan Beat Box.” 2007 single ‘Wonderlust King’, lifted from the band’s most acclaimed album, Super Taranta!, will be familiar to many.
Hütz is a charismatic frontman who starred in Madonna’s first film as a director, Filth and Wisdom, and also Live Schreiber’s adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Everything Is Illuminated.
